That's not only "must have 50 users" but more a "must have 50 users that do
stuff on those machines". 
See, that's the problem, when you don't define those rules exactly: what
qualifies for a "user" - how often needs the user on the machine, how much
time must he waste there, and so on and so on?
Is it ok when a user only logins every half year or is it needed that he is
there on a daily basis? Does it qualify as a user when there's an IMAP
folder that the user is using or maybe a uucp account?
It's difficult to judge when a user is a user sometimes... ;)
